    Yeah, degrees of separation. Funny how the human mind works that way.

    My grandparents lived in a town not too far away and as a kid when visiting them during summer holidays I'd always here "Tisdale" mentioned...less often "Humbolt" and "Melfort". Later in life I met and discovered that my best friend's mother came from Carrot River. I've met a couple others who are from the area. (Ha, FWIW, Shannon Miller is from Melfort). This tragic event has rekindled lots of those memories. Such memories and past relationships always make you unconsciously assume or feel that you have a connection to such an event when that is not the case.

    Saw in a grocery store today a colour poster taped to each cash register with the team's logo and colours (might have had a team photo as well, can't recall) requesting donations. With the embedded hockey culture across this country this tragedy has had a gigantic effect on the entire nation from what I can tell.

    The Fifth Estate conducts a five-month investigation into school bus and coach bus safety in Canada:

    Update on the distribution of the $15M GoFundMe dineros...wonder if that is C$ (which would make sense) or US$ (which would make "sense" for a different reason)?

    Wickenheiser?...well, maybe?

    And $500K for payment processing!!!!!! is about as strong an argument as can be made for value transfer using blockchain technology. Imagine how much of that (for those who aren't aware...pretty much all of it) would have also been available for distribution to the grieving families. That's a tragedy in and of itself.

    Thanks for the updates Blackbeard. I meant to post sooner as I was surprised when I read the Fifth Estate article and it mentioned Elaine Alpert and the death of her son Stephen. I remember that accident and I also met and became friends with Elaine and her husband Bill Marsh a few years later until they moved from the Boston area to Vancouver.

    "Families of those killed and injured in the Humboldt Broncos crash say enforcing use of seatbelts is as important as requiring them. The charter bus company involved in the crash had already installed seatbelts without a federal rule, but none of the players were wearing one."

    when I was in high school I was on the the last bus stop to be picked up, rarely was there a seat for me or anybody else from my stop, in fact there was barely room for us to get on

    a front end crash would have made the people on our stop air bags for everyone behind us, but I don't recall anybody anywhere in the state getting killed back then, I'm guessing fatalities per mile, a school bus is about the safest mode of travel ( and it's far safer than being in school sadly)
    The mass hysteria in our country over Trump gets worse with each passing day, he Miss Spelled a word, get over it. The sun will still set in the west and rise again in the east.

    This focuses your attention on the serious karmic load that some people, (all of us sooner or later), have to burn off at different times in their lives sometimes in seriously compressed time frames.

    But most of us don't have the world watching.
